Eye Infections, Bacterial
Tea Tree Oil
A cutaneous disorder primarily of convexities of the central part of the FACE, such as FOREHEAD; CHEEK; NOSE; and CHIN. It is characterized by FLUSHING; ERYTHEMA; EDEMA; RHINOPHYMA; papules; and ocular symptoms. It may occur at any age but typically after age 30. There are various subtypes of rosacea: erythematotelangiectatic, papulopustular, phymatous, and ocular (National Rosacea Society's Expert Committee on the Classification and Staging of Rosacea, J Am Acad Dermatol 2002; 46:584-7).
Eye Infections, Parasitic
Any arthropod of the subclass ACARI except the TICKS. They are minute animals related to the spiders, usually having transparent or semitransparent bodies. They may be parasitic on humans and domestic animals, producing various irritations of the skin (MITE INFESTATIONS). Many mite species are important to human and veterinary medicine as both parasite and vector. Mites also infest plants.
Deductibles and Coinsurance
Cost-sharing mechanisms that provide for payment by the insured of some portion of covered expenses. Deductibles are the amounts paid by the insured under a health insurance contract before benefits become payable; coinsurance is the provision under which the insured pays part of the medical bill, usually according to a fixed percentage, when benefits become payable.
Home Care Services
Community health and NURSING SERVICES providing coordinated multiple services to the patient at the patient's homes. These home-care services are provided by a visiting nurse, home health agencies, HOSPITALS, or organized community groups using professional staff for care delivery. It differs from HOME NURSING which is provided by non-professionals.
Nursing care given to an individual in the home. The care may be provided by a family member or a friend. Home nursing as care by a non-professional is differentiated from HOME CARE SERVICES provided by professionals: visiting nurse, home health agencies, hospital, or other organized community group.

Hoof and Claw
A chronic inflammatory disease of the skin with unknown etiology. It is characterized by moderate ERYTHEMA, dry, moist, or greasy (SEBACEOUS GLAND) scaling and yellow crusted patches on various areas, especially the scalp, that exfoliate as dandruff. Seborrheic dermatitis is common in children and adolescents with HIV INFECTIONS.
Encephalitis, St. Louis
A viral encephalitis caused by the St. Louis encephalitis virus (ENCEPHALITIS VIRUS, ST. LOUIS), a FLAVIVIRUS. It is transmitted to humans and other vertebrates primarily by mosquitoes of the genus CULEX. The primary animal vectors are wild birds and the disorder is endemic to the midwestern and southeastern United States. Infections may be limited to an influenza-like illness or present as an ASEPTIC MENINGITIS or ENCEPHALITIS. Clinical manifestations of the encephalitic presentation may include SEIZURES, lethargy, MYOCLONUS, focal neurologic signs, COMA, and DEATH. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p750)

Bacterial conjunctivitis in Muc1 null mice. (1/97)PURPOSE: In contrast to wild-type mice, genetically engineered Mucin1 (Muc1) null animals display a marked propensity for development of blepharitis and conjunctivitis. Molecular approaches confirmed the presence of Muc1 mRNA and protein in the conjunctival tissue of wild-type mice and identified the bacterial species in Muc1 null symptomatic mice. METHODS: Muc1 null animals housed in a conventional facility were examined for visually apparent inflammation of the eye and surrounding tissue. Blood taken from overtly affected animals was assayed for antibodies to common murine viral agents. Swabs of infected eyes and whole eye preparations were used to detect and speciate bacterial pathogens. Frozen sections of whole eye, lid margin, and Harderian gland were immunostained with antibodies to Muc1 and cytokeratin 14, both epithelial cell markers. Northern blot analysis and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) were performed on RNA isolated from conjunctiva and Harderian gland of wild-type mice to compare relative levels of transcript. RESULTS: Student's unpaired t-test performed on the eye inflammation frequency of Muc1 null mice confirmed a statistical significance (P < 0.01) when compared to wild-type background animals housed in the same room. Analysis of blood samples from affected Muc1 null animals detected no common murine viral pathogens. Bacterial analysis of conjunctival swabs and whole eye preparations demonstrated the presence of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus, Streptococcus type alpha, and Corynebacterium group G2. Muc1 antibody staining of wild-type sections revealed the presence of Muc1 on conjunctival goblet and non-goblet cells and on the epithelium of the Harderian gland. Serial sections stained with cytokeratin 14 antibody confirmed the epithelial nature of cells expressing the Muc1 protein. RNA from conjunctiva and Harderian gland subjected to RT-PCR and northern blot analysis showed an abundance of Muc1 transcript in these tissues. CONCLUSIONS: Muc1 mRNA and protein are present in murine conjunctival and Harderian gland epithelia. Animals lacking Muc1 mRNA and protein are predisposed to developing eye inflammation when compared to wild-type animals with an intact Muc1 gene. Muc1 appears to play a critical protective role at the ocular surface, presumably by acting as a barrier to infection by certain bacterial strains. (+info)
Identification and antibiotic susceptibility of coagulase negative staphylococci isolated in corneal/external infections. (2/97)AIMS: To identify and determine antibiotic susceptibility of coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) isolated from patients with chronic blepharitis, purulent conjunctivitis, and suppurative keratitis. METHODS: A retrospective review of all culture positive cases of chronic blepharitis, purulent conjunctivitis, and suppurative keratitis between July 1995 and December 1996 was performed. Cases in which CoNS were the sole isolates were analysed. Species identification was performed by using a commercially available standardised biochemical test system. Antibiotic susceptibility to penicillin, gentamicin, tetracycline, erythromycin, ciprofloxacin, and teicoplanin was determined by agar disc diffusion (Kirby-Bauer method). Teicoplanin resistance was confirmed by agar dilution. RESULTS: 42 Staphylococcus epidermidis, four S warneri, three S capitis, two S hominis, one each of S xylosus, S simulans, S equorum, and S lugdunensis were identified. 37 CoNS were penicillin resistant, 12 gentamicin resistant, 28 tetracycline resistant, 18 erythromycin resistant, four ciprofloxacin resistant, and one teicoplanin resistant (MIC, 32 microg/ml). In total, 16 strains were resistant to three or more antibiotics. CONCLUSION: Species of CoNS apart from S epidermidis may be isolated from patients with corneal and external infection. Antibiotic susceptibility of CoNS is unpredictable and multiresistant strains are common. As a result, antibiotic susceptibility testing should be performed in all cases of clinically significant ocular infections caused by CoNS. (+info)
Suppression of induction of experimental immune mediated blepharoconjunctivitis by tolerogenic conjugates of the antigen and monomethoxypolyethylene glycol. (3/97)AIM: Covalent conjugates consisting of diverse antigens coupled to optimal numbers of monomethoxypolyethylene glycol (mPEG) molecules have been shown to suppress antigen specific antibody formation. In this study, the possibility was examined that the same conjugates might prevent experimental immune mediated blepharoconjunctivitis (EC, formerly EAC) which had been shown to be caused by CD4(+) T cells-that is, to cell mediated immunity. METHODS: 6-8 week old male Lewis rats were used. The test groups of rats received two intravenous injections, each of 300 microg, of a conjugate of ovalbumin mPEG (OVA(mPEG)(11)) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), 14 and 28 days before the single immunisation with OVA in complete Freund's adjuvant. The rats were challenged 3 weeks later by eye drops containing OVA; 24 hours later they were sacrificed, and their eyes, blood, and lymph nodes were harvested for histological examination and determination of anti-OVA antibody titres and levels of cellular immunity. Two control groups received PBS or OVA in PBS before immunisation. Furthermore, the possibility that OVA(mPEG)(11) may have induced OVA specific suppressor cells was tested by establishing the effects of the co-transfer of splenocytes from OVA(mPEG)(11) treated rats with OVA primed lymph node cells on the manifestations of EC. RESULTS: Either PBS or OVA pretreated rats, which had not received OVA(mPEG)(11), developed high levels of antibodies and cell mediated immune responses to OVA, and application of eye drops led to blepharoconjunctivitis with massive cellular infiltration. In contrast, pretreatment with OVA(mPEG)(11) prevented cellular infiltration into the lids and conjunctivas, as well as the formation of detectable humoral and cellular immunity against OVA. Co-transfer of splenocytes from OVA(mPEG)(11) treated rats with OVA primed lymph node cells suppressed the cellular infiltration on application of OVA on the conjunctiva. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that intravenous injection of OVA(mPEG)(11) conjugates suppressed both humoral and cellular immunity by the effects of antigen specific suppressor cells, thus leading to the inhibition of development of EC.

Enhanced secretory group II PLA2 activity in the tears of chronic blepharitis patients. (4/97)PURPOSE: Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) hydrolyzes phospholipids, one of the important constituents of human meibomian gland secretions. This study was performed to investigate PLA2 type and activity in the tears of chronic blepharitis patients compared to those of normal persons. METHODS: Tear samples of 36 patients and 10 normal persons were collected in non-heparinized microcapillary tubes. PLA2 activity in the tears was measured by Dole's method, and the results of the blepharitis patients were compared to those of the normal persons. The characterization of PLA2 was performed by the head group preference test and the dithiothreitol (DTT) sensitivity test. The classification of PLA2 type was done using Western blot analysis with anti-human secretory PLA2 antibody. RESULTS: No statistically significant differences were found among the six categories of chronic blepharitis. However, the mean PLA2 activity in the tears of the chronic blepharitis patients was about two times higher than that of the normal controls with statistical significance (P < 0.05). The PLA2 substrate specificity test revealed group II PLA2 activity. Furthermore, the group II PLA2 was identified as a 14 kDa band in Western blot analysis using an antibody raised against human secretory group II PLA2. CONCLUSIONS: Secretory group II PLA2 activity was significantly enhanced in the tears of the chronic blepharitis patients compared with that of the normal controls. It is suggested that this increased enzymatic activity may decrease the tear film stability through increased hydrolysis of phospholipids. (+info)
Herpes simplex virus virion host shutoff (vhs) activity alters periocular disease in mice. (5/97)During lytic infection, the virion host shutoff (vhs) protein of herpes simplex virus (HSV) mediates the rapid degradation of RNA and shutoff of host protein synthesis. In mice, HSV type 1 (HSV-1) mutants lacking vhs activity are profoundly attenuated. HSV-2 has significantly higher vhs activity than HSV-1, eliciting a faster and more complete shutoff. To examine further the role of vhs activity in pathogenesis, we generated an intertypic recombinant virus (KOSV2) in which the vhs open reading frame of HSV-1 strain KOS was replaced with that of HSV-2 strain 333. KOSV2 and a marker-rescued virus, KOSV2R, were characterized in cell culture and tested in an in vivo mouse eye model of latency and pathogenesis. The RNA degradation kinetics of KOSV2 was identical to that of HSV-2 333, and both showed vhs activity significantly higher than that of KOS. This demonstrated that the fast vhs-mediated degradation phenotype of 333 had been conferred upon KOS. The growth of KOSV2 was comparable to that of KOS, 333, and KOSV2R in cell culture, murine corneas, and trigeminal ganglia and had a reactivation frequency similar to those of KOS and KOSV2R from explanted latently infected trigeminal ganglia. There was, however, significantly reduced blepharitis and viral replication within the periocular skin of KOSV2-infected mice compared to mice infected with either KOS or KOSV2R. Taken together, these data demonstrate that heightened vhs activity, in the context of HSV-1 infection, leads to increased viral clearance from the skin of mice and that the replication of virus in the skin is a determining factor for blepharitis. These data also suggest a role for vhs in modulating host responses to HSV infection. (+info)
Effects of IL-4 and IL-12 on experimental immune-mediated blepharoconjunctivitis in Brown Norway rats. (6/97)IL-12 and IL-4 are critical cytokines for Th1 and Th2 differentiation, respectively. To assess the roles of these cytokines in the development of experimental immune-mediated blepharoconjunctivitis (EC) in Brown Norway (BN) rats, their effects were tested either in vitro or in vivo. Draining lymph node cells from rats immunized with ragweed pollen (RW) in Al(OH)3 were collected and cultured for 3 days with RW in the presence of IL-4, IL-12, or PBS as a control. After harvesting the culture supernatants for cytokine ELISA and the cells for cytokine reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction, 10 million cells were injected intravenously into syngeneic recipient rats (n = 12 per group). The rats were challenged with RW by eye drops 4 days after transfer. Eyes were harvested for histology 24 h later. Furthermore, IL-12 (500 ng per injection) or PBS was injected intraperitoneally every other day seven times from the day of active immunization (n = 6 per group). One day after the last injection, rats were challenged and EC was evaluated as above. Transfer of cells with IL-4 in vitro augmented eosinophilic infiltration in the conjunctiva compared with the other two groups, whereas IL-12 in vitro suppressed eosinophilic infiltration and increased lymphocytic infiltration. Interferon-gamma production was augmented by IL-12. IL-4 RNA expression was augmented by IL-4. IL-12 administration in vivo augmented lymphocytic infiltration in the conjunctiva without affecting infiltration of eosinophils. In conclusion, IL-4 and IL-12 either in vitro or in vivo augmented Th2 and Th1 immunity, respectively, thus leading to distinct histological features of EC. (+info)
Hay-Wells syndrome is caused by heterozygous missense mutations in the SAM domain of p63. (7/97)Hay-Wells syndrome, also known as ankyloblepharon-ectodermal dysplasia-clefting (AEC) syndrome (OMIM 106260), is a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterized by congenital ectodermal dysplasia, including alopecia, scalp infections, dystrophic nails, hypodontia, ankyloblepharon and cleft lip and/or cleft palate. This constellation of clinical signs is unique, but some overlap can be recognized with other ectodermal dysplasia syndromes, for example ectrodactyly--ectodermal dysplasia--cleft lip/palate (EEC; OMIM 604292), limb--mammary syndrome (LMS; OMIM 603543), acro-dermato-ungual-lacrimal-tooth syndrome (ADULT; OMIM 103285) and recessive cleft lip/palate--ectodermal dysplasia (CLPED1; OMIM 225060). We have recently demonstrated that heterozygous mutations in the p63 gene are the major cause of EEC syndrome. Linkage studies suggest that the related LMS and ADULT syndromes are also caused by mutations in the p63 gene. Thus, it appears that p63 gene mutations have highly pleiotropic effects. We have analysed p63 in AEC syndrome patients and identified missense mutations in eight families. All mutations give rise to amino acid substitutions in the sterile alpha motif (SAM) domain, and are predicted to affect protein--protein interactions. In contrast, the vast majority of the mutations found in EEC syndrome are amino acid substitutions in the DNA-binding domain. Thus, a clear genotype--phenotype correlation can be recognized for EEC and AEC syndromes. (+info)
Primary herpes simplex virus type 1 infection of the eye triggers similar immune responses in the cornea and the skin of the eyelids. (8/97)Herpetic stromal keratitis (HSK) and blepharoconjunctivitis in humans are thought partly to result from immunopathological responses to herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). The corneas of NIH mice were inoculated with HSV-1 (strain McKrae) and mice were examined for signs of disease and infection on days 1, 4, 7, 10, 14 and 21. The eyes and eyelids of infected and control mice were processed for immunohistochemistry and double stained for viral antigens and one of the following cell surface markers (Gr-1, F4/80, CD4, CD8, CD45R or MHC class II) or one of the following cytokines (IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IL-12 or IFN-gamma). All infected mice developed signs of HSK by day 4 and blepharitis by day 7 and these both persisted until day 21, when signs of resolution where apparent. Virus was detected during the first week of infection and became undetectable by day 10. Large numbers of Gr-1(+) cells (neutrophils) infiltrated infected corneas and eyelids in areas of viral antigen and CD4(+) T cells increased significantly in number after virus clearance. In both sites, the predominant cytokines were IL-6, IL-10, IL-12 and IFN-gamma, with few IL-2(+) and IL-4(+) cells. These observations suggest that the immune responses in the cornea are similar to those in the eyelids but, overall, the responses are not clearly characterized as either Th1 or Th2. In both sites, the neutrophil is the predominant infiltrating cell type and is a likely source of the cytokines observed and a major effector of the disease process. (+info)

Blepharitis is a condition that causes inflammation in the eyelids. Many people have blepharitis. It is also called granulated eyelids. There are two types of Blepharitis:. Anterior blepharitis - This type affects the outer front part of the eyelid, where the eyelashes are attached. The two most common causes of anterior blepharitis are bacteria (Staphylococcus) and scalp dandruff.. Posterior blepharitis - This type affects the inner eyelid, in the moist part that makes contact with the eye. This part of the eyelid contains oil (meibomian) glands. Problems with these glands cause posterior blepharitis.. People with certain skin disorders are more likely to get posterior blepharitis. These disorders include acne rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis (scalp dandruff).. ...
BLEPHARITIS - Beachmont Eyes
Inflammation of the eyelids is known as blepharitis. The margins of the eye lids are inflamed, causing redness and itching of the eye lids. This problem recurs after intervals and is the leading cause of recurrent pink eye in elderly people. Often times this condition mimics Dry Eyes because of the sensation it causes under the persons eye lids.. There are two types of blepharitis - anterior blepharitis and posterior blepharitis. The former affects the front part of the lids, near the lashes. It is caused either by the Staphylococcus bacteria or a condition similar to dandruff, known as seborrheic dermatitis. The back of the lids is affected by the latter, and this affected area is actually what makes contact with the eye. The oil glands present in the area are the causal factors.. Posterior blepharitis is more common than anterior blepharitis. The primary treatment for blepharitis consists of a daily lid margin hygiene. Blepharitis is oftentimes a lifelong condition. The routine is fairly ...

Azithromycin in DuraSiteÂ® for the treatment of blepharitis | OPTH
Azithromycin in DuraSite® for the treatment of blepharitis Jodi LuchsDepartment of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USAAbstract: Blepharitis is a common inflammatory disease of the eyelid. Posterior blepharitis affects the posterior lamella of the eyelid and involves inflammation of the meibomian glands, whereas anterior blepharitis affects the anterior lamella of the eyelid and the eyelashes; either version can be inflammatory or infectious in nature. Each of these conditions can incite or propagate the other; anterior blepharitis, if not treated, can lead to meibomian gland disease, and vice versa. Blepharitis is typically chronic, and can be associated with a variety of systemic diseases such as dermatitis, as well as ocular diseases such as dry eye, conjunctivitis, or keratitis. The standard treatment regimen historically consists of lid hygiene with warm compresses and eyelid scrubs, although these treatment modalities may have limited efficacy for
Blepharitis Treatment Without Medicine | Healthcare Professionals
Blepharitis, in laymans words, is the inflammation of the eyelids accompanied with such symptoms as redness, itching, burning, excessive tearing, blurred vision, and dry eye. These symptoms are associated with bacterial infections on the lids. As currently there is no effective cure for blepharitis, involves controlling the condition. In most cases, blepharitis can be effectively prevented by maintaining adequate hygiene. But for more serious cases, medications or natural treatment of blepharitis should also be considered.. The basic treatment of blepharitis involves keeping the lids clean. You should apply warm compresses to your lids to loosen crusts and then scrub the eyelids with a cotton swab. Baby shampoo has been used traditionally for eyelid hygiene, but it is not antibacterial and long time use of it will make the skin dry. As blepharitis does not disappear completely and reoccurrence is common, regular eyelid hygiene is important to prevent its reoccurrence.. is not a serious ...

Blepharitis is a condition where the eyelids become inflamed. The part of the eyelid where the eyelashes grow is mostly affected by this condition. It may affect one eyelid or both eyelids of the patient. The condition mostly occurs when tiny oil glands located near the base of your eyelashes get clogged. This condition may lead to red eyes and eye irritation. Blepharitis is considered a chronic disease which is quite difficult to treat. Hence, most of the patients may not require blepharitis treatments to get rid of the illness. On the other hand, this condition cannot be 100% cured, but the symptoms could be controlled with a proper eyelid hygiene routine. This read offers an overview of blepharitis treatments. For more information please visit http://www.dryeyesclinic.co.uk/Treatment.. The main symptoms of the condition include red and watery eyes, itchy eyelids, greasy eyelids, crusted eyelashes, loss of eyelashes, sensitivity to light, and frequent blinking.

Blepharitis | Manitoba Association of Optometrists
Blepharitis is a chronic condition, and there is no cure, but appropriate treatments can help manage symptoms. While over-the-counter treatments for blepharitis are available, it is advisable to consult your optometrist if you experience these symptoms. There are several ways to treat blepharitis. Cleaning away the crusty material around the lashes with warm compresses (at least twice daily) helps keep the lashes clean and improves the flow of the oily component of tears. Commercial lid scrubs (medicated pads similar to the ones used to remove eye makeup) help clean the eyelids further. An effective substitute for commercial lid scrubs is a small amount of baby shampoo diluted with warm water and applied to the eyelashes with a cotton ball. In some cases, prescription antibiotic ointments applied to the lid margins may help manage the symptoms of blepharitis. Artificial tear and steroid eye drops may also be prescribed by your optometrist. In severe cases, oral antibiotics may be ...

BLEPHARITIS | Rotorua Eye Clinic
Marginal blepharitis is chronic inflammation of the edges (margins) of the eyelids. It is a common condition.. . The eyelids contain special glands called sebaceous glands, which produce oily secretions. These secretions form an important part of the tear film. In blepharitis, these glands often become overactive and produce too much of these oily secretions, which become thick and turbid. This reduces the quality of the tears, which in turn, irritates the eyes. Scaly secretions form on the edges of the eyelids. Sometimes bacteria grow on these causing even more inflammation.. Symptoms. . When people suffer from blepharitis, they may have varying symptoms. Many people have no symptoms at all. Others feel burning or itching. Often there is a feeling as if there is something in the eyes, like sand or gravel. The eyes may feel tired or weary. The symptoms are often worse at the end of the day or in situations where the eyes dry out more quickly. The eyelid margins may be red and appear ...

We report a case of a 30-year-old woman with persistent itching in the left eyelid which was unsuccessfully treated under the diagnosis of allergic blepharoconjunctivitis. Careful ophthalmic examination revealed seven bugs with multiple red pinpoint excretions and numerous small translucent oval eggs (nits) coating the eyelashes. The patient was successfully treated with mechanical removal of all the lice and nits from the eyelashes. The specimen proved histopathologically to be the Phthirus pubis infestation. The Phthirus pubis infestation is usually associated with poor hygiene in overcrowded or undeveloped ...

Allergic eye disease mechanisms | British Journal of Ophthalmology
Now that the cellular infiltrates in both acute and chronic disease are better characterised, there are significant implications for treatment of allergic eye disease (for review see Abelson and Schaefer73).. Topical therapy is the preferred treatment in mild diseases of SAC and PAC. Since neither are life threatening, or even sight threatening, experimental systemic treatments are not indicated in the way they may be in more serious ocular allergic disease such as AKC. Powerful anti-CD4+ T cell agents, such as cyclosporin, should be kept for severely affected cases with keratopathy. In the T cell driven processes of VKC and AKC27 28 specific anti-TH-2 treatment of VKC, rather than blanket anti-T cell therapy, may be a future option.. In SAC and PAC, where mast cells and histamine release are involved in the disease pathogenesis, both topical and systemic therapies have been tried. Oral histamine H1 receptor antagonists (antihistamines) such as astemizole, terfanidine, and loratidine have been ...

Georgia eye physician | GA Eye Physicians and Surgeons - Part 3
First, light entering the eye must pass through its clear outer surface, or cornea, which is kept smooth, clean, and lubricated by a thin coating of tears. These tears are produced by specialized cells in the eyelids, but damage from environmental factors like smoke, pollution, and ultraviolent light can, over time, cause the eyelids to become inflamed, potentially impairing tear production. This condition, commonly known as blepharitis, creates the sensation that a cloudy film is covering the eye, partly obscuring vision. As evaporation of the tears and drying out of the corneal surface gets worse, the condition can evolve into chronic dry eye, which may require the use of surgical tear plugs to fully relieve. In the early stages, however, blepharitis can be treated simply with warm compresses, artificial tears, oral antibiotics and even topical immunosuppressive agents that decrease the inflammatory response.. Once the light enters the eye it is focused by a clear, flexible lens, which can ...

Eyelid Lesions and Eye Tumors - NYEE
What are eyelid lesions and eye tumors?. Eyelid lesions are abnormal growths of tissue that can be either benign (for example cysts and styes) or malignant (skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma). Tumors can grow in the eye socket, or orbit, the space around and behind the eyeball. Orbital tumors can displace the eye or push it forward to create a bulging effect known as proptosis. If left untreated, tumors can become painful, lead to loss of vision, invade surrounding tissues or even spread to other parts of the body.. How are eye lesions and eye tumors treated?. The first step in treatment of a lesion or a tumor of the eye is an accurate diagnosis. This is obtained by performing a biopsy of the lesion to determine if it is benign, pre-cancerous, or cancerous. The Ophthalmic Pathology Service at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) offers onsite pathology services, allowing our surgeons to closely collaborate with pathologists to obtain ...

Dry Eye Disease and Treatment
There are many treatment options for dry eyes which are highly dependent upon the cause and severity of the condition. Many mild forms of DED can be alleviated using artificial tears or lubricant eye drops to make up for the lack of natural tears usually produced by your eyes. If over-the-counter drops dont alleviate your symptoms, your doctor might prescribe prescription drops that actually stimulate tear production or steroids for short-term relief.. More severe cases of dry eyes might be treated with a punctal insert which is a tiny insert containing a slow-release lubricating substance that is placed inside the lower eyelid. Since DED is often related to eyelid inflammation known as blepharitis your doctor may prescribe a heated hot compress mask, specialty eyelid scrubs and sometimes an antibiotic ointment. Finally, punctal plugs might be recommended for severe cases which would be inserted into the tear ducts to reduce the tear drainage in your eyes to keep them from drying out.. If the ...

Epiphora (excessive tearing)
In order for the eye to remain healthy, it must remain moist. Each time you blink, the eyelid spreads the tears over the surface of the eye and pumps excess tears into a duct that drains the tears into your nose. That is why your nose runs when you cry. Excessive tearing not only could be annoying, it also could be interfering with vision if severe. Tearing problem can be due to either excess production of the tears or deficiency of tear drainage.. Any irritation to the surface of the eye can lead to reflex tearing. Most commonly, blepharitis (inflammation of eyelid margin), dry eye syndrome, allergy of the conjunctiva (skin covering white part of the eye) and corneal abrasion (scratches) are all possible causes of excessive, reflex tearing. The treatment should target the source of the problem, usually involving optimizing the health of the ocular surface and providing sufficient lubrication to the eye.. Tears drain from the inner corner of the eye via two opening (puncta), one in the upper ...
Pterygium - Wikipedia
Pterygium refers to any winglike triangular membrane occurring in the neck, eyes, knees, elbows, ankles or digits. The term comes from the Greek word pterygion meaning wing. Popliteal pterygium syndrome, which affects the legs. Pterygium (conjunctiva) A pterygium grows in response to exposure to ultraviolet light. They are more common in light-skinned people living nearer the equator, particularly where outdoor activities are popular. As the pterygium grows, it replaces the corneal epithelium, and erodes the superficial layers beneath it. These layers are Bowmans membrane, and the anterior corneal stromal lamellae. The pterygium pulls and distorts the cornea as it enlarges. A pterygium reduces the vision in several ways: Distortion of the corneal optics. This begins usually when the pterygium is greater than 2mm from the corneal edge (limbus). Disruption of the tear film. The tear film is the first lens in the eye. Pterygia are associated with eyelid inflammation, called Blepharitis. Growth ...

Ocular Virulence of Candida albicans Strains | IOVS | ARVO Journals
Purpose: : To evaluate virulence of Candida albicans homozygous mutants in a murine keratitis model. Methods: : Corneas of 3-5 immunocompetent adult female BALB/c mice were topically inoculated with a wild-type strain of C. albicans, a transposon-induced homozygous mutant (rbt1-/-), its parental control (DAY286), knockout homozygous mutants BCa7-4 (rbt1-/-) and BCa11-3 (rbt4-/-), or its parental control (CAF2-1). The fungal load inoculated onto the cornea was at concentrations of 105 or 106 colony-forming units (cfu) following corneal scarification. Mock-inoculated, scarified eyes served as controls. Eyes were scored daily for 8 days post infection (PI) using a 12-point scale to categorize corneal disease. Results: : At 106 cfu, wild-type C. albicans human isolate (SC5314) had a high degree of virulence in the murine cornea, and the fungal strains used to generate the mutants (DAY286 and CAF2-1) had similar corneal pathogenicity (P , 0.43 and , 0.11, respectively). Likewise, the rbt1-/- mutant ...
